‘Single Origin’ means that the coffee beans are all sourced from the same place. Bean origin matters because factors such as the soil type, climate, production and processing methods shape the final flavor – from the aroma to the aftertaste. These are beans that are grown within a single farmer cooperative. Shaped by the levels of rain, farmers’ traditions, specific growing conditions and processing methods, this coffee is a unique product of that particular time and place. Because it’s bound to a harvesting season and has very limited availability, it’s more expensive, but also of very high quality.

We bet you’re wondering just how in the world did a KANSAS farming family develop their own coffee line?

You might have noticed that a couple of our farmhands are from Uganda. Frank and Tom love to go to market with us! Of course, their family raises coffee on micro-plantations back home.

As a small, sustainable farm ourselves, we quickly identified with the challenges of our friends growing small plots of coffee without the aid of chemicals.

We were saddened to discover that even specialty coffees come largely from “estates” – giant coffee plantations, many of which are corporately owned.

The small-holder coffee farmer had no real access to good markets. They were largely at the mercy of the coffee buyers who came out to their villages in the country. This meant they often sold their premium crops below the cost of production to these middlemen.

So we hired our own coffee pickers and visited the farmers that we knew had the best growing practices.

Receiving a fair price for their harvest allows these farmers to invest in their families’ healthcare and education, reinvest in quality, and protect the environment.

We wanted to be able to share with our customers a taste of authentic, quality coffee from trusted and transparent sources.

It’s a journey, but one well-worth taking!

    I don’t drink coffee, but my husband likes when I surprise him with a bag of this coffee.
